best way to photograph a spiders web?

a water spritzer for plants. I sprayed this web with wee dots of water & you know what happened? When the morning sun hit it, i saw rainbows.

There was no spider on the web at the time & the water dried in minutes.

Now that it is fall & Alabama spiders start building HUGE webs all over the house. My son, when he was young, hated the webs. I told him that we should be grateful for their help in decorating our house for Halloween. He believed this to be true for a few years & then i heard him tell a friend the same. It was so sweet. I did tell him later that it just seems that way, but i didn’t think the spiders knew about the holiday. :)
